Product Review ~ Akile Hijab Magnets

Friday, July 12, 2013

Have you ever pinned your favourite hijab using a safety pin only to realise at the end of the day that it has gotten caught in the hijab and the only way to get it out is by ripping a giant hole into it? Or have you ever gone in to give your friend a cheek hello and end up scratching them to shreds because of that rogue hijab pin that was sticking out oh so slightly? Let me tell you that all of the above have occurred to me personally and both scenarios end up with either a mouthful of curses or apologies. 
Insert Akile hijab magnets from www.akilem.com. 
These nifty little gems were invented to cancel out any grief over using hijab pins. They come in a variety of colours and finishes such as stone or Swarovski crystal and can be worn daily and to special glitzy events. They give your hijab a cute and polished finish (there is nothing classy about an exposed safety pin) and also saves your hijabs (and innocent bystanders from being ruthlessly attacked by an angry pin).
I was sent three varieties - a plain black stone,  a plain white stone and a gorgeous glamorous Swarovski crystal version. 



They come in two sizes per box, one small (for under the chin) and one large for the shoulder.


And guess what ladies? They have plenty of youtube tutorials showing you how to use them! Just hop onto their website to see for yourself (links above and below).



I road tested these pieces before writing this post so that I can give you my honest opinion as to how they hold up. I wore them all, for a full day and was actually surprised they held up so well! I had to readjust the one under my chin only once but other then that they were superb.
